Your DeptCon 2 reading list

Easons and their YA division, Department 51 will be hosting Ireland's biggest YA conference this October. Now in it's second year, DeptCon was a massive success in 2015 and attracted an incredible array of talented Irish and international YA authors. 

The team behind DeptCon 2 have their finger right on the pulse of the YA genre and they know exactly what fans of these books want from a conference. We keep checking in on the line-up each week and just. keeps. getting. better. We're talking absolute World-class, best selling, top-of-their-game authors and the list just keeps growing! 

With almost two months to go, this is your official DeptCon 2 reading list....

  1. I'm definitely going out of my way to attend this year, such good best selling authors, how can I not! I wish they would release which authors are attending which days, or are they there for both? R xx

    1. It's such an impressive line-up! The team in Easons are so in touch with their YA audience. Ah I know! I doubt many would be there for both days, fingers crossed they can reveal some of the details soon though!x
